I hope that works out for you Jimmy, but I have to tell you I've had dozens of clients buy those things and end up not using them because they are such a PITA to get on the dog. I've stood and watched people spend 15 min. (seriously) trying to get their dog into the thing.

With that said, they are available here... http://www.drsfostersmith.com/Produc...+113233+113564

That's a supplier that I use for other things.

I use the harness and teather combo with my dog. I got it for a couple of bucks at petco or petsmart. Forget which one.

My golden retriever is scared of my d-90. he is such a puss though. He will bark at you like crazy if you come up but once you get close he runs back in to his igloo. He gets very scared..It took me forever to get him to swim in the pond near the house or ride in the back of my tacoma. I guess i have to work iwth him on the 90

Jason,

The key is to slowly ease him into it...for some reason he associates a ride in your truck with something negative...like going to the vet or a kennel. You should try to take him on short rides...to the park, on a hike, to Petco...things that he will associate with fun or food. You could also try keeping some treats in the truck...so that when he gets in...you can have a reward for him. The ride in a 90 is pretty bumpy and the dog bounces around a lot...making them queasy. I know that it's cold this time of year, but if you slide (or roll down) the window, giving him some fresh air...it helps set their equilibrium.

I hope that helps,
Brian

Thanks Brian,
I was thinking of ways on how he might enjoy it more....I don't think theres a prettier sight on the road then a D90 with a dog in it...For some reason it looks so cool to see a dog riding in a 90....Ill try some of those things and see how he likes it...

Jason

Crazy dog

So I'm on my way to a hike just outside of boulder, with my shepard/collie mix.... I'm idling along at about 5 mph. It's a gorgeous day out so I had the door tops off and the rear window rolled up. The next thing I know; out the corner of my eye.... Birdy (my dog) leaps from the back, over the bench and out the back window!!! Now she REALLY loves to chase squirrels, but I really didn't think that was going to happen. My 90 has a 2" lift and I've removed the rear carrier and installed a drop gate. That's pretty damn high to be jumping out of especially while rolling.

I'm damn lucky no one was following me. She only suffered a slightly injured leg (probably a small sprain).

So my question is, what'd the best way to train the dog to STAY in the vehicle.... especially when parked and the top is off during the summer???

I guess you didn't read the previous page of this thread.

Very cool. I've always like Chessies.

Update on the pup (the one on the left). He just turned 6 months old and he's at 100lbs.

My girlfriend is up in the Yukon or Alaska right now, one of the veterinarians on the Yukon Quest sled dog race. She tells me one of the mushers runs a team comprised entirely of rescue dogs. After the race the dogs are all adopted out and he starts all over again for the next year!
I think that's kinda neat.




I guess I should have a land rover refrence in here somewhere. While my girl is away I can spend more quality time with my 90.

Hi Mike,

You could practice with your dog in your parked truck on your driveway or up at Chautaqua by the park and ranger station (in a less crowded area). Will she try to jump out and follow you if you go into the house? If she does, then I would work with her on telling her to "stay." Once you've got that down, you can also work on the stay command while she is in the truck by throwing one of her favorite toys around in the yard. I would remain in the truck with her (keep a leash on her) while someone else is trying to distract her. When/if she tries to get out...give her a loud "no" command. Keep working on it. The biggest trick will be to keep her focused on you. Repitition is key...and your shep/collie mix is smart enough to pick it up quickly...is she hasn't already...that must have hurt :-(

You could also invest in a pair of side nets (http://www.raingler.com/shop/produc...p?productID=155) or a dog crate.

I was going through "My Pictures" folder and found this pic of our Boxer (Rocky Rover). This is 2 years ago when he was only 1 year old. Needless to say, it's also my favorite Rover on a Rover pic...

Beautiful Chessie!! Your pup is a great match for your D-90! Good for you for adopting from CBR Rescue; they are great folks. Here's pics of my Chessie that I used to have. I had to send him to live with some friends in PA when my housing situation changed unexpectedly. Now that things are getting settled, I'm thinking of adopting one from cbrrescue.

Chris,

Truly a great breed. With just over six months together he amazes me every day. He is now up to 104 lbs. This is a picture from today.


Are you any relation to this Steve Snell?

Chessies are a great breed. I stumbled across them 12 years ago and am totally sold! They're definitely not for everyone, but for Zach suits me just fine. Plus, he's a great trail dog. Much hardier than bulldogs, that's for sure!
